I would like to understand Syncthing and .stignore better. Maybe the following is obvious, but sometime I don’t see the woods because of the trees. Call me a n00b.
Setup: A and B sync with each other. A and B have the same .stignore file with one entry: foo/
Question: When A and B talk to each other,
- is A pretending not to know about the contents of foo/ to B because of the .stignore on A? or
- does A tell B is has foo and contents of foo but B is ignoring the contents because of its own .stignore on B?
Thanks in advance for any insight. Yes, I’ve read the documentation but am still unsure.
